he Octane Materials Masterclass : This Pro Series Course is designed to be the definitive materials resource for all octane artists. We cover all Octane material types, all nodes and everything else you need to know when it comes to creating your own bespoke materials.
It comes complete with project files and an ever growing library of prebuilt Octane Materials. And as with all courses in our Pro Series, content is regularly updated and new videos are added all the time.
What you’ll learn
With over 70 lessons we cover everything you need to know
We’ll start off by covering each of the Material Types in Octane including the Diffuse, Glossy, Specular, Metallic, Universal, Toon, Mix, Blend and Portal Materials.
We’ll then cover every node available within Octane to create your shaders and materials. We’ll see examples of what each node does and how to use them in your workflow.
We’ll build several materials together step by step and we’ll share loads of tips on how to get great looking shaders and physically accurate results. All Project Files are included and new videos are being added all the time.
Bonus Material Library
The course includes a plug-and-play Octane Materials library with over 50 prebuilt materials you can use in your own projects or as a starting point for your bespoke materials. We’re also adding new materials all the time!
